    There was an ad on CL for an apprentice in the Metrowest area the pay seems low though.

    http://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/trd/1367516204.html

    Get your oil license someone will hire you this winter in a heart beat. There are always a ton of ads in MA when it starts getting cold. They may not pay that well either but you'll get your feet wet. Its supposed to be a brutal cold winter so you may find some shops even hiring helpers.

    I tried to apply to that ad on CL. Never heard back from anyone. Also tried to call never heard back from anyone again. This is getting very frustrating. I am starting to forget things that I went to school for.
